Attending this event?

Welcome to the Greatest Summit on Earth!

 #VBDLSS is a free, live, concurrent conference for VBCPS educators by the educators of Virginia Beach City Public Schools.   

Due to social distancing guidelines and procedures, most sessions are available in both face-to-face (red) and live-streamed (orange) environments. Please note that there are some sessions that are ONLY offered in a virtual format (green). Face-to-face spots are limited and will fill up quickly. However, if your desired face-to-face spot is unavailable you can always choose the live stream option.

The flexibility of this conference allows you to attend in a multitude of ways. You can choose strictly face-to-face at Salem HS, live-streamed/virtual from the comfort of your home, or a mix! There will be learning lounges located at Salem HS for you to utilize throughout the day for attendees wanting to do both face-to-face and virtual options. 

To Register:  ADD one session per time block to your schedule.  This will reserve your spot in that time block.  You must use SCHED to register for your desired sessions for this conference.  All links to access live-streamed and virtual versions of the session will be available in SCHED under the session information section. 

Please note that all attendees MUST complete an exit ticket for EACH session in order to receive points.  

This event is sponsored by the Instructional Technology division of the VBCPS Department of Teaching & Learning.  The Digital Learning Summer Summit Advisory Committee plans and conducts this conference.
